by Rainier on Sept. 6, 2001 @ 1:03 a.m. PDT

Built on the new "CloakNT" graphics and game development engine, "Chaser" promises exciting new breakthroughs in gaming experience and graphics. The game, developed by Cauldron Limited, is based on the adventures of a security agent in a futuristic and hostile Mars colony.

"The 'CloakNT' engine provides the means to create a gritty, science fiction landscape teeming with hostility and danger, and provides an unparalleled interactive gaming experience," said Jerry Wolosenko, head of Fishtank activities in North America. "'Chaser' will bring a new kind of gaming experience to even the most sophisticated gamer."

About "Chaser"
In the year 2086, poverty and corruption on Earth has driven desperate people to colonies on the surface of Mars. Chaser is an agent of a security agency who has lost most of his memory after a botched covert operation. He has no idea why the military goons want to eliminate him, how he got blacklisted by the gangs, or why people around him are dying. Chaser only knows that he's in big trouble, and he's got to find answers... yesterday.

"Chaser" is a showcase for the latest innovations in gaming featuring:

  • A variety of scenarios with incredibly photo-realistic textures and effects created in a full 32 bit-rendering environment.
  • Advanced AI with role-playing control levels.
  • Unusual, fully functioning weapons and devices.
  • Well-balanced, realistic combat.
  • Advanced sound system with echoes, frequency filters and support for 3D positional audio such as EAX and A3D
  • Single player mode with context driven events and an engrossing story.
  • Several multiplayer modes with voice chat.
  • Robust, proprietary game and a graphics engine that allows creation of highly dynamic worlds.
